During October, we ran a competition inviting residents to submit a photograph that encapsulated “Woodmancote Today”. Thank you for sending in all your photographs. These have been published in the Photo Gallery.
A big thank you to Bernard Parkin for kindly volunteering to judge the entries. Bernard has lived in the village for over 65 years and has had a long career in racing photography most notably Racing Photographer to the Queen since 2002 and Official Photographer to Cheltenham Racecourse between 1972-2007.
Bernard was full of admiration for all entries “The last photographic competition I was asked to judge was for the 2011 Racing Photographer of the Year. There were sixteen finalists, each an experienced professional. Some of the entries for this local competition would equal any of those. I am most impressed”.
The winners are:
Congratulations to the winners. Arrangements will be made for you to receive your prizes. These include a signed copy of Bernard’s autobiography, due out in Spring 2021.
